Hi I'm Taylor Poulsen

I'm from Nampa, Idaho, I'm a Missionary in Fort Worth Texas, I Love Livin' My Life, I Go Beast Mode, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I Love eating ice cream and watching movies with my Family, I Love going Beast Mode with my friends, and I Hate being alone or doing anything by myself. I especially Love playing Adult Softball/Indoor Soccer with my family, B-Ball with my friends, Snowboarding with my dad, Boating with my ward, and of course video games with the whole world. I wish I loved Surfing, Back-flipping Dirt Bikes, Skydiving, and Heroic acts of saving damsels in distress but i have not yet had the opportunity to experience these things... But once I experience them I will love them! Costa Vida and Mongolian BBQ warm my soul. Learning and Teaching are some of my more recently found passions. Currently my favorite pass-time of all is knocking on doors and sharing my testimony in a different language, all day every day, out in the Texas heat. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon principally because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of God. It is the church with Christ himself as the chief cornerstone, the church with a Prophet and Apostles chosen by revelation to guide us and edify us, and it is the church with the Priesthood Authority of God to allow us to participate in the Ordinances necessary for our Salvation and Exaltation. I have read the Book of Mormon, pondered its teachings, prayed with a sincere heart, real intent, and faith in Christ and thereby I know it to be true for myself. I have gained my own Testimony of the truthfulness of this church through my own search and invite all to do the same. I am a Mormon secondarily because it makes me Happy. I am a Mormon thirdly because my parents promised me since before I could blink that they knew that this is the true church and I believed them :) Once i found out for myself, my belief in their words has become kind of obsolete, but hey, they were the ones that got me on the right track and I love them and thank them so much for that. And THAT is why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission in Fort Worth Texas. So I live my faith by going out on the daily to teach everyone i see about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I make sure that I am always doing the basics to keep my faith strong; Going to church on the weekly, Reading the scriptures on the daily, and talking with my Father in Heaven on the hourly. Serving others in any way I can is another one of my favorite ways to live my faith. My parents as well as the parents of my friends have been teaching me this principle since I was young and it makes me happy to live it. (Mosiah 2:17, Matthew 25:40) I think the most important way I live my faith is through Repentance. I am constantly trying to change my thoughts, desires, and actions to be more like Christ. That is a pretty big task because I have a LOT of things to improve on but I'm making it happen one step at a time.
